Dhaka, Jan 11 (UNB) – A youth group has decided to boycott Bollywood star Salman Khan’s forthcoming movie ” Jai Ho” for taking part in a musical extravaganza in Saifai in Uttar Pradesh.


Members of the Youth Initiative for Peace and Harmony (YIPH) condemned both Salman and Madhuri Dixit for participating in the “Saifai Mahotsav”, held in the village of Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav.

The group said it was a pity the actors went to the show when the Uttar Pradesh government was not doing enough for victims of the communal riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.


But the YIPH, however, welcomed the donation of Rs.25 lakh from Salman to the JN Medical College.


Jasim Mohammad of YIPH told IANS that Mulayam Singh Yadav should not have held the “Safai Mahotsava” this year and Salman and Madhuri Dixit should have not attended it showing “some sensitivity to human values”.


Mohammad said the YIPH would boycott the film “Jai Ho”.
